An erosion-of-civil-liberties update:

ginmar on a Prevention article relating to restriction of access to birth control. (And a call for a class-action lawsuit.)

suricattus with a link to an action group.

Time to renew that ACLU membership...

(sigh)
No kidding.
Not just 30. There's a large overlap with the ones who want to kill Social Security, and I wouldn't be surprised if some of them think it's about time for an agonizing reappraisal of women suffrage.

A local talk show host in Atlanta went on record years ago saying the country would be better off if women had never been granted the right to vote.

Now granted, he capitalizes on shock value, but a lot of scary people take him seriously.
Want to make an impact? Don't just write your congresscritter or your newspaper (although do that, by all means!). Write your local pharmacy. Tell them that you WILL boycott the store if they adopt these policies.

I use a local CVS for many purchases, both prescriptive and sundry. My total dollars may be relatively small, but they do add up. Multiply that by a thousand angry customers, or two thousand, or five, across the U.S....

Vote, as they say, with your feet.
We need to keep track of any "blacklists" which are being compiled online. Since I live in a major metro area, I probably will never encounter this problem (famous last words), but people shouldn't have to phone around to know where the freaks are (ideally).
I think this calls for a boycott of any pharmacy chain that would allow such a thing to happen.
I believe the list is Walmart (no shock there), CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens and Eckerd. IIRC, either Atrios or AMERICAblog is also collecting names and numbers of pharmacies that people have called to ask directly: "would you fill this prescription, and do you have any pharmacists on staff who've made clear they would refuse?"

*sigh* In other words, all the big chains.

Do you have any links? (Maybe I should just Google. :-) )
Trying to dig it up now. Minor drawback of reading so many blogs; the RSS gets jumbled...will post when I find.
Found it, over at Atrios' site:

Another blog, with some fascinating conversations going on in the thread--read all the comments. Market power, and all that. From Reason Hit & Run:

So... If Doc and Pharms have moral issues with the pill, wouldn't it be nice if we could just make it OTC and cut them from the loop?
Have you thought about contacting the insurance companies? I'd be willing to hazard that a pharmacy chain would be prompt in filling legal prescriptions if Aetna said "do it or we'll send our subscribers elsewhere."
See, there's a clever idea.
